Our mission is to serve the community, too.
Chelsea Groton Foundation, Inc. was formed in 1998 as a Section 501(c) (3) organization. Initially endowed with a $2 million dollar donation from Chelsea Groton Bank, and recently gifted an additional $5 million from the Bank, the Foundation has awarded over $2.1 million in grants to hundreds of scientific, educational and charitable organizations located within the Bank’s Connecticut and Rhode Island market area.
Each year, Chelsea Groton Bank and the Chelsea Groton Foundation support more than 200 local, nonprofit organizations through monetary gifts, grants, sponsorships, scholarships, and employee volunteerism via donations of time and talent. In 2016, the Foundation, Bank and its employees together contributed $347,019 and 7,130 hours to benefit our community.
